Thanks to Charlie Thorpe for compiling this listing.



The following is a partial retyping (the cover sheet and Resource Order Form is omitted) of the BSA "Recursos Scout en Espanol" (Scouting Resources in Spanish) publication No. 94-002, 1996 printing.

Each item is followed with the order number and price in the following format: (xxxxx, yyyy) where xxxxx is the order number and yyyy is the price. "n/c" means "no cost" (free!). Please excuse any typing errors.

----< the following should be doggone close to a direct partial retyping >-----

The following Scouting resources have been translated into the Spanish language to encourage and facilitate the involvement of parents and adult leaders who cannot read English. Eliminating the language barrier allows these adults to participate in the Scouting program today, not tomorrow when they have learned English. With the increasing number of Spanish-speaking residents of the United States, this will be essential to the success of Scouting now and in years to come.

When feasible, resources are done in a bilingual format. However, due to the size and complexity of some of the resources and the cost factors involved in keeping up with the frequent changes to the English editions, some resources are available in a Spanish-only format.

I hope folks will get some good out of the above list. It has been interesting to see how many international Scouters would like to see our BSA documentaion in Spanish. The two publications that I wanted most are apparently NOT yet translated (Boy Scout and Scoutmaster Handbooks)!

Thanks for the info, Michael.

y'all come,
